Hi-tech hospital gets robot fleet27th June 2007
A new hospital being built in Scotland will be the first in the UK to use robots to transport goods and equipment.
The £300m centre at Larbert in Stirlingshire will replace the existing Falkirk and Stirling Royal Infirmaries and will be the first in the UK to use a fleet of robots that will run along separate corridors and use magnetic strips or infra-red to find their way around. Similar to technology used in car plants.
However, hospital porters will still transport patients at the hospital which is due to be finished by December 2009.
